Lending is the ultimate long position, but $1b is insane. Governments would start getting really aggressive at that point.

Insane? It's required! Now you cannot even pay a car with Bitcoin without moving the market.
AFAIK, nobody buys cars with Bitcoin (at least not cars worth enough to move the market). Bitcoins are great for novelties, drugs, and discounted gift cards, but video cards are generally the most expensive items users typically buy (pulling that statistic out of my ass, but I don't think many would argue). The Bitcoin exchange rate is extremely volatile, and I don't imagine there are many people willing invest a significant sum of money in a currency which fluctuates 10% in price day-to-day (it's certainly kept me up at night). I don't see any signs of that volatility going away, and while it remains, nobody's going to post in the lending subforum requesting an $80k home mortgage.

This made me curious about what the most expensive thing ever bought with Bitcoin is (I'm suspecting it's a business rather than a commodity). Maybe we need a poll about this too.

$1B isn't insane, the market cap went above $100M during last year. Granted, it was a surprise but if we witness another surprise of that magnitude, $1B would be less than impressive.

You are setting an OUGHT to the current IS. If I thought the current state of Bitcoin is the summit, I'd be out as fast as a transfer goes to MtGox.

I don't think BTC is at its peak, fwiw. I don't recall a time when BTC didn't fluctuate at least 10% in value from the high to low for a week since I've started mining ~April/May '11, however. It's possible BTC could reach $1b in total value, possible God exists as defined by the KJV Bible, and possible Sasquatch exists in space and is plotting the demise of the human race.

Here's the final summary of the dates chosen, voting & prize entries are now closed, with the time frame of the 4 years up to the end of 2017 being the most popular years for issued Bitcoins to reach $1 B in the poll votes, but 2012 taking it in the date choice & the same for 1 BTC to gain parity with 1 gm Au.

Here also a rounded up table of the approx BTC price for achieving $1 B in the years of them being mined & the $ value of each 5 BTC prize offered - though I chose dates for 2015 myself the sooner I get to give those prizes away the happier I'll be  Tongue

Year  1BTC   5BTC    5BTC     20BTC (the doubled prize for winning both dates)

2012   $110   $550     $550      $2,200
2013   $95     $475     $475      $1,900     <--- WTG BTC & Scott J ~ March 2013 for the double prize!   
2014   $80     $400     $400      $1,600
2015   $75     $375     $375      $1,500

There is no chance God exists... there's a remote chance a sasquatch exists... there's almost certainty Bitcoin will reach a market cap of $1b.

I should've said 5/01 for both, so I'd win by default if either hit within the next three months. Does this mean I should be rooting for QE3 & WWIII?

ATTENTION BFL MINING NEWBS: Just got your Jalapenos in? Wondering how to get the most value for the least hassle? Give BitMinter a try! It's a smaller pool with a fair & low-fee payment method, lots of statistical feedback, and it's easier than EasyMiner! (Yes, we want your hashing power, but seriously, it IS the easiest pool to use! Sign up in seconds to try it!)

I really thought there would be some useful developments for Bitcoin, but other than Bitzino I don't see much on the horizon until Bitcoincard goes into production. If you think of Bitcoin as a business, it doesn't offer much in the way of services yet.

Any significantly advanced cryptocurrency is indistinguishable from Ponzi Tulips.

Updated the OP & summary post above to show the prize coins set aside for this, I'm thinking now we'll see this happening in 2017 with a price of over $60 per BTC then & not just a bubble either.

Prizes:

1BiLLioN
1GramAu1
1x2wins

Note entries for the prizes are closed.

The 1g AU bet seems to be finished and 1B doesn't seem to be far away as well.

2013 03 23 Scott J
This is de 1g AU winner I guess?

And since Scott has the same date for both I guess there's a pretty good chance he'll win both and so 20BTC or about 2000$ by then.

Yep, you're right - ty, it does look like Scott J has won the 1g Au bet as 1g Au = $51.93 atm (laughably close to it's price when I made this poll over one year ago on 2012 01 04 = $51.25 up under 1.5% only), whilst 1 btc which was under $5 at the time has done appreciably better (up over 1,375%) & is now at $71.50 with this jump up which happened so fast from $50 over the last 3 days or so & did occur since the last person's entry of expected value.

I shall review it all over the next couple of days.

Yep, I can confirm that 1 BTC first equaled 1 gram of gold on the 18th March 2013, so Scott J with a pick of the 23rd March 2013 was easily the closest & wins a 5 BTC prize, for the $1B prize we would need a BTC price of approx $95 if it was to be in 2013 which seems possible now, if over $100 (?) happens before mid April roughly (need to calculate coins issued times price) then Scott J would win the times two doubling prize for a total of 20 BTC all together.

Scott J - please post an address that you would like your prize to be sent to, many thanks & congratulations!

Edit: just tracking you down, it looks like it's: 1ScottJJpqTCBbTqnPa7Dyak5cfBPhtdh - I've PM-ed you for confirmation.






   >        !

Amazing to think that 1,000 BTC now equals considerably more than 1 Kg of gold atm. Shocked

Funny how the price then climbed about 50% to 1.5 gms Au/BTC over just the next 3 days & then crashed back to about 1 gm again 2 days after that, now somewhere in the middle-ish, maybe 1.25 gms approx.


Edited to add, from the distant future of about Nov 2013, the BTC vs Gold Oz chart:

WOW! This is really amazing Shocked

I obviously thought it so unlikely that I would win either prize, let alone standing a chance of winning the 20 BTC!!

Thank you, Otoh - this was a really fun competition and is very generous of you Smiley

Sending to this address would be great - 1ScottJJpqTCBbTqnPa7Dyak5cfBPhtdh
